Using Glitter Cardstock in Cardmaking
Hello paper crafters! Altenew just released some GORGEOUS glitter cardstock and it is just wonderful for cardmaking. I love the sparkle that it adds!
For my first card I used three colors of blue glitter cardstock (Moonlight, Blue Apatite and Starlight) from the Ocean Reflection combo pack. I used Altenew’s Rippling Rings Border Die to die-cut three strands of circles and then glued them to a white panel. I wanted a bold high-contrast sentiment so I inked a scrap of cardstock with Purple Wine Ink from The Rose Petal Mini Cube Set and then die cut my Simply Hello Sentiment. This card came together very quickly but is just lovely!
You can see the shimmer a bit better in this second photo.
I used Glitter Cardstock from the following sets:
